    Apple recently updated the Apple Watch Nike+ section of its official website with a launch date two weeks from today, on Friday, October 28, for the anticipated device (via Watch Generation). When announced alongside the other Apple Watch Series 2 models on September 7, Apple did not divulge a specific debut besides sometime in "late October."

    Anyone interested can pre-order the wearable in four models starting at $369 for 38mm and $399 for 42mm. Apple's partnership with Nike aims to help runners achieve better results while wearing the Apple Watch, with an aluminum casing similar to other Sport editions and a unique perforated band that's stretchy, light, and breathable.

    The changes extend into the software of the Apple Watch Nike+ as well, as Nike has designed special software for the Nike+, which is designed to motivate runners to stay active. Nike+ Apple Watches include unique Nike-designed watch faces and complications for the Apple device that users will only be able to get when purchasing the special edition of the Apple Watch.

    At its iPhone 7 event, Apple mentioned that its wireless AirPods would see a late October launch, so it's possible the Bluetooth headphones will also launch on October 28. More anticipated is the expected debut of new MacBooks later this month, which Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed in September by reassuring fans, saying he and the company are "very committed" to the Mac line and to "stay tuned."

    LOL and all the Mac hopefuls were dreaming about some other product which is not as useful as an Apple Watch with super cool bands.

    Wishful thinking, they haven't been announced yet, Apple will probably hold an event later this month.

    If I'm not wrong the Nike Run Club app wasn't yet updated to support Series 2. I'm waiting for this because it's unusable without phone right now.

    Prediction:

    Recap at the October event about iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 and how successful they've been, Nike model launching tomorrow along with EarPods. iOS 10.1 and macOS 10.12.1 launch as well.

    Waiting til they release the new Nike specific watch bands in about 6 months.

    After years of R&D they scientifically discovered that putting holes in a material allows more air through which will help with sweating during periods of activity. All while making it easier to clean or rinse of when dirty. Quite useful!

    Oh goody! I can buy another one so it can sit on my desk beside the first edition I have which is still looking for a use.

    Seriously, I rarely wear it anymore. It's a nice convenience at time but hardly something that I can't live without. Wearables may evolve to something more useful but they are "not all that and a bag of chips" at the moment. Apple has to have a product in this space. It just doesn't fit in with my needs. However I can see how it is beneficial to very active persons- socially and activity wise.

    I wish there was a new Apple computer somewhere in the near future.

    Weirdly enough, when I was in the Apple Store in Switzerland last week, they already had the Nike Watch and Band in the showcase tables.
    I didn't ask about price or if you can already buy them, but they were at least there to look at.

    I will say the Nike edition is the one series 2 watch I'm a tiny bit tempted for. I'll not take the plunge since the Series 0 that I have is good enough for me.

    Same for me, although I'm very happy with the functionality I get from Runtastic on my Series 0 so they'd also have to improve the Nike app to seriously tempt me
